PRESENTATION

The survey showed that there are many individuals in my school who have access and
the ability to use the internet, many of them use their laptops to access the internet and
some rely on their smartphones and tablets. The survey also indicated that most of the
learners access the internet mostly at home and at school and lesser at places such as
the library and family/friends house. Most of the learners in my school have a good
ability of accessing the internet although some are unable. Wifi is the most common
means of access followed by airtime and data which is because Wifi is free and data is
expensive and most learners cannot afford to purchase data to be able to access the
internet. The rate of accessing the internet is high indicating that there is a high internet
usage in my school. Not all students have access to the internet outside the campus
and not everyone had the same level of skill of using technology as some could use
technology while others could not. There was a strong relationship (correlation) between
the ability of learners to access the internet and how often they accessed the internet.
